DEADLINE: October 15, 2019
Photography 4 Humanity is an international initiative that calls on photographers around the world to bring to life the power of human rights through their images. Highlighting the most compelling imagery – illustrating courage, despair, hope, injustice, hate, compassion, human rights failures or victories in ways small and large – the images will serve to inspire people to personally get involved and to take a stand for human rights.
At the core of the initiative is a global call to action for amateur and professional photographers alike to submit images for an annual competition where the Top 10 finalists each year will have their photographs exhibited at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on December 10, 2019 – Human Rights Day.
Submissions will be open from
May 1, 2019 until October 15, 2019
Entry is free. APPLY HERE
The Photography 4 Humanity Global Prize will be announced at the exhibition opening gala, attended by invited dignitaries, media, photography professionals and human rights champions. Along with a $5,000 USD cash award, the Global Prize will bring a large amount of industry recognition and prestige to the winning photographer. Select photos will be featured on the Photography 4 Humanity website throughout the year. This will garner large amounts of exposure for the photographer as well as highlight the human rights issues depicted in the images.
